Vision. It can be a very slippery thing. As leaders, we can have a crystal-clear sense of purpose and direction at some points, but they may seem like foreign objects from time to time. Sooner or later, it happens to all of us. In this book, Pastor Greg Surratt shares his story of asking himself hard questions… and finding the answers to be both surprising and inspiring. He addresses the crucial topics of limitations, culture, and legacy, but he also dives into harder issues of how to handle heartaches and what actually captures the hearts of the people we lead.

Re-Visioning is designed to recharge our leadership batteries and equip us to inspire our teams with humility, boldness, and joy.

Greg is a pioneer in church planting and multi-site strategy. Leaders in all sizes of churches and across the spectrum of denominations value his insights, his heart, and his blend of kindness and tenacity in advancing God’s kingdom.

Re-Visioning reminds us that we all struggle, no matter how large or small our churches or how long we've been in ministry. Leaders young and old will return to this book again and again for its deeply encouraging message of hope, power, and renewal.

Many pastors struggle to overcome trials and setbacks in their ministry. Re-Visioning will not only help you survive ministry, but empower you to do it sustainably, effectively, and with joy. If you want to tear down walls that keep you from pursuing God's calling, read this book!

Craig GroeschelSenior Pastor, Life.Church (Edmond, Oklahoma)

We all have seasons in ministry when we aren't sure we have it in us to keep pressing on. That's why we need friends who will help us stay focused when all we want to do is give up. That's why I'm so thankful for Pastor Greg Surratt's book, Re-Visioning. You'll be linking arms with a friend who will help you start moving forward once again with a renewed sense of purpose and hope.
